Back home

It’s good to be back home. It’s not another sunny day, but it’s good nevertheless. 😉

I turned on my computer, checked here and Gmail, and found 223 spam emails plus 5 comments to be moderated. No Gmail false positives, and only one comment wasn’t spam – the rest were. I’m happy the WordPress 1.5 comment spam countermeasures are working, thanks especially to MacManX’s large blacklist. I had a couple emails through my contact form, but thankfullly nothing urgent.

How was camp? Snowy. It snowed for basically four days straight. It was truly a winter wonderland, and everything looked majestic. The trees were covered with so much snow! I took a few pictures, but I couldn’t get any of myself. I was pretty scared to take my camera out into the snow. Others did, only because they had umbrellas to protect their precious investments. Jon (not this one, another) took one of me with one of my boys, so I’ll try to get that from him sometime soon.

We didn’t go to Mtn. High until yesterday. The conditions on Saturday weren’t good, so Sunday was much better. I didn’t do too much snowboarding – only about 1 1/2 hours. I’m a wuss, I know! My ankles were hurting, though. I really wish I could take some professional lessons, because I don’t know the right way to do it. After I got back to camp, I ended up taking a two-hour nap, and that felt really good.

All my stuff is pretty damp, including some books I took up there to try and study. All in all, everything and everybody got back home safely. I’m glad things seem to be in order back here at home – well, at least with this site and all my friends’ sites.

There were quite a few items in my newsreader, but I don’t think I can catch up with all of them. I hope nobody gets mad – I’m not too significant in the WordPress blogosphere, so it prolly doesn’t matter.

What’s on tap this week? Baseball season is starting up at Kare, so Sportline will be converting to baseball equipment. I’ll be having to press a lot of jerseys. I’m also building a powerhouse PC for a customer and a really great guy. At work, we should be finishing the move to the new building. I’ll take some pictures as I go along. I also need some ideas for personalization to make my office…mine.

  1. As far as personalizing your office…why not put up a life poster in there? If not…perhaps making a scaled down version (maybe 11×17?) That’d be a nice way to get a lot of things from your personal life into your office without taking up a lot of space.

  2. Yeah, I was thinking about that right when I wrote this. I’m still unsure if there’s a method to do it without iPhoto or Photoshop. I definitely don’t need something huge, either.
